ABSTRACT
The article reports that an environmental consortium comprising of the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Marine Fisheries Service and other federal agencies, has filed suit to change operations at eight dams of the Federal Columbia River Power System. The move follows a ruling that 14 dams of the system are not immutable features of the landscape and federal agencies are required by the Endangered Species Act to mitigate the impact on salmon. The ruling requires federal stakeholders to rework the 2004 Biological Opinion that outlines the ecological rationale for the $600 million per year proposed to protect 13 threatened salmon species.
